KK Cardmaking Club resumes for 2012!

Hi to all crafters,
We were back at the Kilkenny Cardmaking Club tonight in Kilkenny with everybody enthusiastic about getting back to their cardmaking after the Christmas lul.  I was on for teaching and I done a card using the 'Amelia' topper from the Pretty Sweet CDrom that is recently out from Polka Doodles.  Hope you like it!

'Amelia' Topper using labels twenty nestabilities to cut it out
 and backing papers from the CD.  The greeting is not from the CD.

We held a meeting after the class and it has been decided to cut back on our teaching nights and have more social classes instead so we will give this a try for a few weeks and see how it goes.  This way we will be able to work more with individuals, observe the different ways that others might do something, share ideas and help each other out more.  The Club meets every Wednesday night at 7:30p.m in the Clubhouse Hotel in Kilkenny and new members are always welcome, so do come along.

Just to finish here are some cards that I have been working on recently.  I must really make an effort to take photo's of cards for the New Year - they are often gone off with people before I think of it and it is nice to have some pictures to go back on for ideas again afterwards.

This is a double easel card which was for a couple celebrating their 60th Birthday at the same time.
One of them is into Tennis and the other Golf so I used each side of the easel to distinguish the two sports.

Happy New Year to everybody and here's hoping that 2012 will be filled with lots of wonderful times and many happy memories.

Kilkenny Craft Club - Catch Up!

Kilkenny Craft Club had a great night at their Christmas Party Night in the Clubhouse Hotel.  The group were joined by Bernie Keane from BK Crafts in Dungarvan and her friend Midi Walsh.  After a lovely dinner Bernie opened her shop for the group and Midi gave a beautiful card demonstration to the group.  It is hoped that some of the group will travel to Dungarvan to attend some of the girls monthly craft groups.  Hopefully this will be the start of a great friendship between the two clubs.

On the last Wednesday of the club before our party night, Patricia O'Leary gave the regular Wednesday night class and here is a picture of her card.
